Logitech G910 Orion Spark Review
Logitech's RGB keyboard. Fullsize with one column of macro keys.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Very little LED bleed
Because the Romer-G switches actually have LEDs inside them, which is impossible with MX, Kailh, Topre, etc. switches, it's very difficult for any of the light to bleed out. It still happens a bit, but not much.
Pro LUA scripting
LGS has a LUA scripting engine in case its macro capabilities aren't enough. Unfortunately, scripts are wholly separate from macros, so you can't save scripts and then use the GUI to assign them to keys.
Pro Lots of macro keys
G1-G5 are easy to reach, G6-G9 less so. There are also M1, M2, and M3 profiles, each of which can hold a complete set of G-keys. LGS can also configure this per-game, so players of multiple MMOs can have three sets of G-keys for each MMO rather than just three total.
Pro Windows key locking
Most keyboards support this in one form or another, but the G910 has a nice big button next to the lock LEDs.
Pro Media keys
Like most large gaming keyboards and unlike smaller, general-purpose keyboards (Ducky, Leopold, Topre, etc.), the G910 has a full set of media keys (play/pause, stop, rewind, fast-forward, mute, and a volume roller).
Pro Arx Dock
Instead of the LCD screen that Logitech put into several previous keyboards, the G910 has a phone dock and iOS/Android app. This has several advantages over the embedded screen, mostly lower cost and the ability to control the screen on its own. Arx Control can monitor system temperatures and clocks and even launch games.
Pro Logitech Gaming Software
The G-keys and lighting have tons of configuration options in LGS. This is also a pro for users of Logitech G-Series mice and headsets, as you only need one software installation to work with all of them.
Pro RGB backlighting
Like the Blackwidow Chroma and K95/70/65 RGB keyboards, the G910 supports custom per-key RGB colors.
Con Lighting modes are restrictive
Each key can be set individually, but if you want any animation then it has to be across the whole keyboard. I wanted to animate my number pad.
Con Feet are rather short
The G910 is almost completely horizontal with the feet out, and it actually angles backward with them retracted. Longer legs would help a lot.
Con Wrist rest cannot be removed
The G910 has a wrist rest skeleton built onto it. It comes with two covers, one of which covers the skeleton and the other of which extends it, but it cannot be removed. The picture up top is the larger of the two rests, so it makes the problem appear somewhat worse than it is to those who would prefer none at all.
Con Keycap font
The keycap font is one more of the stereotypical "edgy gamer" versions. In my opinion it's better than Cooler Master's or Razer's, but it still can't touch good old Arial et al.
Con No custom keycaps
Romer-G switches have completely different stems from all existing switches, so there are precisely zero custom caps so far. Their design also looks like it would make custom caps rather difficult to produce compared to MX caps.
Con Short key travel distance
The G910's Romer-G switches have a longer travel distance than most domes, but it's noticeably shorter than Cherry MX switches.
The G910 is very large, even for a fullsize keyboard.
